St. Michael’s Weekly Post – For Week Beginning 24th June 2019

5th July 2019

Year 4:  As part of our topic ‘The View from your Window’ Year 4 have been learning about changing environments. On Tuesday 9th July we plan to walk from school to visit the site of the abandoned village of Snap. We will enjoy a picnic lunch before returning to school for 3.15pm. The children will need suitable walking shoes/trainers and long trousers. All children must have a hat and water bottle and a small rucksack to carry their lunch. If anyone would like to volunteer to join us on our walk, please let Mrs Ford know.

Year 5 and selected Year 6:  On Thursday 11th July, Year 5 and selected Year 6’s will be attending a Cricket day at Marlborough College.  Part of the day will be spent watching English Ladies play Australia in a warm up match before The Ashes.  We do need help with transporting children to and from Marlborough College leaving St Michael’s at approximately 9.30am and returning at 2pm.  To give consent and to offer help please complete the slip overleaf. For more information see separate letter.

Year 3 and 4 Food Business Project: As part of our topic ‘How does the view from your window shape your life?’ Years 3 and 4 have formed ‘companies’ and are creating their own food products based on local produce. We started with a talk from Ramsbury Estate who explained how they took an idea for a product all the way from ‘field to fork’. The culmination of our project is an opportunity for the children to share their final products with you at The St. Michael’s Food Festival! The children will set up a market with all of their products for you to see and taste. We hope that you will join us at 2.30pm on Wednesday 10th July to see all their hard work.  The project will involve lots of ingredients. We would be very grateful for a contribution of £3 towards this cost which you can pay on ParentPay.

Reception and Year 1:  Please can you ensure library books are returned next week.

Violin Lessons:  If your child would like to have violin lessons next year please contact Tom Bott directly on t.bott@yahoo.co.uk

Winterbourne House Day:  If you still have any envelopes of change to bring in from our house day, please can you return them by Monday 8th July 2019.

Volunteers:  If anyone can come in and help paint classroom boards black on the 22nd and 23rd July, please can you let Mrs Lambert in the office know.

Lost property: Please check lost property by the school front door if your child has lost anything this term. We will also have a lost property table in the playground at pick-up time today so please take a look.

St Michael’s Rainscape Gardens:  As you walk into school, please take time to look at the progress Wendy, Linda and our amazing volunteers have made to our new gardens.  Our next volunteer days are Tuesday 16th July and Tuesday 23rd July.  If you would like to get involved in this rewarding project please email linda@riverkennet.org call 07557 524548 or turn up on the day.  Everyone welcome no experience ready.
